The 10 most in-demand career specialties in healthcare
From Sept. 3:
The family doctor is the most highly recruited health care provider for the 7th year in a row, according to physician staffing firm Merritt Hawkins, a subsidiary of AMN Healthcare (AHS). Family physicians, including those family doctors who deliver babies, are part of a rising wave of top recruits to hospitals, clinics and other medical care centers because they are part of the primary care profession, which treats patients generally in outpatient settings where medical care costs are less expensive. This trend is driven by pressures from employers and insurers trying to keep a lid on costs as well as the Affordable Care Act, which emphasizes lower cost medical care.
